Members who complete certain tasks or meet certain criteria are automatically promoted to higher ranks.
Certain ranks unlock special rights & privileges, such as access to secret hidden parts of the Newagemugen forum.
The higher the rank, the more bonuses, privileges, and secret forum access you will have.
TIER 1 - Initiation Ranks (AKA Prospect Ranks)
These are the first 6 achievable ranks on our forum.
These ranks are designed to test new members before inducting them into higher Tier2 ranks and higher.
Unlike the Tier 2+ ranks, Tier 1 ranks do not hold any special privileges.
Rank titles are self explanatory - Your journey starts here.
01. Lurker -->
02. New -->
04. Senior -->
05. Elite -->
06. Veteran -->
07. Legend -->
TIER 2 - Warrior class Ranks

TIER 4 - Mystic class Ranks
Members of this rank class are what we also refer to as "allied" member ranks.

the Newagemugen name. To reach the mystic rank class will take extreme patience and dedication, but comes with high rewards....

TIER X - Secret Class Ranks
Members of this rank class are also referred to as "sponsor/VIP" members.
Secret Class ranks differ in both type & privilege's. Secret ranks are only acquirable by meeting very specific criteria.
Gold Saint: Extremely charitable, generous members that have donated considerably, or regularly use our paid design/commission services.
They are the silent backers, that support Newagemugen from behind the scenes.
Some could argue that they are the real driving force that keeps the Newagemugen community going.
Without Gold Saints, our community would not even be here.
Only Members who are Financers, sponsors, donors and patrons can obtain this rank.
Gold Saints fund everything that keeps the Newagemugen Engine running:
-our web domain hosting/internet fees,
-our graphic design software/resource related costs,
-Google analytics/web maintenance related SEO work
-Crowd funded Mugen commissions
- Various other behind-the-scene things that keep the Newagemugen community running
Gold Saint ranked members have exclusive VIP access to ALL private/crowd funded Newagemugen exclusive Mugen content from any of our Team upon release.
Tier 0 - User Groups (Legacy Member Class.)
or special/returning members awaiting rank reassessment.
Tier 0 ranks are mainly for staff/administration & database management purposes.
Founders: The Gods, Founders and owners of NewageMugen.
Ex-members of the PhantomG's and Club-Syndicate Forum groups that created what we now have here today.
One can not earn this rank - you must be born with it lol.
Administrators: The overseers, the gatekeepers, the guardians of Newagemugen.
Administrators are responsible for all moderation & decision making to ensure newagemugen is properly maintained.
Administrators are special nominated staff that answer only to the Founders.
Primordial Relic: Primordial Relics are dormant/inactive/retired/deceased members that were once cornerstones of the Newagemugen community.
Members that made well known important contributions to wider mugen community as a whole.
Their accounts, forum activity and post history are archived on our forum for historic purposes.
Toadstool (Negative Rank):Toadstools are what other forums call "leecher" or "Super lurker" accounts.
They are also equivalent to "inactive" accounts.
Toadstools are typically members who joined Newagemugen purely for access to download links.
Toadstools typically are only looking for free assistance/content.
Members who do not interact, participate, or contribute to the Newagemugen community in any shape or form, are automatically demoted to the Toadstool rank after certain criteria are met.
In nature, Toadstools are fungi which thrive in dark, shaded seasonal conditions, almost popping up overnight.
They grow fast in numbers, and usually appear in clusters, only to perish equally as fast....
WARNING: Toadstool accounts are blocked from accessing certain links/parts of our forum.
Toadstool accounts are deleted after a certain period of time if the member does not remove himself from this rank.
To avoid/remove this rank, stay active, contribute, post and be part of the community.
